My fondest childhood memories were our many visits to see our grandparents. Spending that Christmas there when Rudolph left his print on grans counter to the 4th of July pool parties when pop pop would tell us to keep some water in the pool. Then as I got older working with pop pop during the last years of elite party rentals. I still remember how calculated all of his moves were which is why he always had the highest tetris score. We love and miss you pop pop and you'll always remain in our hearts and thoughts

I will miss Mr. Johnson coming to the commissary. I have enjoyed him.
My memory of him in my earliest years was first the father of friends of mine that are all of his children. His son Billy was my very good friend through high school. I was at their home often and liked Mr. Johnson's triumph he bought just after they moved from Men Riv. I always wished to own a sports car like that.
My condolences, prayers and love to all of you. I have always admired your family. We will all miss your father.
God Bless.

To the Johnson family, so sorry that you lost the rock and glue of your family. I first met Bill when we worked at Charles Towne Square. Always smiling, standing tall and reserve.
Know that Earth have no sorrow that Heaven can not heal. He will be truly missed. He will forever be in your heart as a bright light.
